Hi everyone , I was musing about the addition of subs to the game, was wondering if WG's devs would consider making an additional WoWs branch off . Say WoWs Merchant Marine for instance-this would allow the development of Destroyer escorts, corvettes , frigates,armed merchant ships Jeep carriers  (and subs). It would allow a different game style and not need subs in the regular game since there's enough issues as it is. I do like the addition of British heavy cruisers - (it's good to sling HE again) . Just a random thought - have fun all.Cheers.

I think a lot of work has been put into subs. Nothing is ever absolute set in stone but I would feel safe saying. Submarines are coming to Random, Coop and maybe Operations. Depending on how they change the parameters of game will decide if they make it into CB, Kots, Ranked, and Ranked Sprint.

If there was a completely different game mode for Merchant Convoys, I could see it.  But Destroyer Escorts have no place with battle fleets.  The job they did would be covered by Escort Destroyers and regular Destroyers, both of which COULD keep up with the battle fleet. 

Note that Destroyer Escorts are not the same thing as Escort Destroyers.  Escort Destroyers are merely regular DDs that have had a good deal of their anti ship weaponry replaced by AA and anti-submarine weapons.  But Destroyer Escorts were much slower (think mid 20 kt range) ships that were only designed to travel with slow merchant convoys, and were optimized for AA and Anti-sub warfare.

Hi ,thanks for the replies -WRT the DEs, they were used by the US  navy (ie USS Brennan DE 13) 20 knots - yes ,slow but my point was to use them in a merchant marine scenario similar to the ones used in WoWs not a battle fleet .They along with corvettes  would be used in convoy apps hence the application of subs to the game . The British navy called the same ships frigates. The term DE came about during the cold war during that time period they became bigger .But your point is taken,Cheers.

All I want to know is at what level the subs will be allowed so I will know what the Highest Tier I can play with out ever facing them. If I have to play lower than five then I will be done , if cant do missions then the point of the game for me is over.
